Hi everyone,
I have 2 types of invoices from Apple: Mac App Store, App Store. When I try to set different rename rules for them based on the PDF contents, I keep getting the first one to rename all the invoices. I suspect that this has to do with the fact that, in the end, both have "App Store" in the contents.
How can I tell Hazel that they are not the same and apply a different rule accordingly?
Thank you so much.

Answer:
Very easy: insert an extra condition excluding some unique text, for example:
"If all of the following conditions are met for the current file:
Contents contain App store
Contents do not contain Mac App Store"
